Farrow & Ball Paint Elephant’s Breath No. 229
£4.95 – £119.00
A warm mid grey
This warm and contemporary grey is renowned for its characterful paint name, originally created by John Fowler, the notable English interior designer. Elephant’s Breath reads as an uplifting mid grey with its hint of magenta, but can become almost lilac in the cooler light of west facing rooms. Try offsetting with Charleston Gray and London Clay for an invitingly earthy scheme with more intense accents, or pair with other Contemporary Neutrals such as the softer Strong White for a sense of neutrality and calm.
Recommended Primer & Undercoat: Mid Tones
Complementary white: Strong White

ECO-FRIENDLY AND CHILD-SAFE
Back in 2010, Farrow & Ball moved their entire range to an eco-friendly water base that’s low odour, low VOC and child-safe, becoming the first in the industry to do so. Easy to clean without harmful solvents, in tins that can be recycled again and again, our paints help to reduce the environmental impact of redecorating your home.
Every one of Farrow & Ball's 132 paint colours is available in a range of durable interior and exterior paint finishes, each rigorously tested to ensure an exceptional depth of colour and long-lasting finish. For the very best results, we always recommend using a Farrow & Ball Primer & Undercoat – see above for the correct tone for this colour.
All Farrow & Ball finishes except Limewash contain isothiazolinones, which may produce an allergic reaction. Farrow & Ball Limewash contains calcium hydroxide which can cause severe damage in contact with skin or eyes. For further information about their products, including guidance on safe use and application:
We recommend using Farrow & Ball Primer & Undercoat wherever you’re using a Farrow & Ball topcoat. Not only is it specially formulated to bring out the very best in their paint, but keeping to the same brand for your priming and painting products will help to avoid any incompatibility issues.
For the best finish, we recommend following the Farrow & Ball system:
- One coat of our Primer & Undercoat in the recommended tone (this can be found above in the product summary)
- Two coats of your chosen paint colour
